my local distributors have the audigy in stock.. ZAR1000 compared to ZAR400 for the sblive. so it is here, but the price is just a bit steep.

Here's the link

http://www.dabs.com/products/prod-in...quicklinx=113K

But they (the UK's largest) have stock imminent but not actually there as this is being typed.

I think this is the same as nowhere having them !!

YA MAN! the c-media on my soyo dragon is the best sound in the house right now! , and the spdif optical ports are gonna be sweet as soon as I get me some decent speakers, but the EAX/A3D effects are definetly the bomb with this setup better than anything else I've tried
